Infragistics version mismatch and Visual Studio designer screen of death

Work email on VS designer screen of death…
———–

Gentlemen,

I wanted to share this find with you.

I was experiencing multiple designer exceptions when trying to bring various designer views – I think some of you encountered the same at different times. As result of investigation, it happened to be discrepancy of Infragistics versions on my machine: the version I had installed was 9.1.20091.1000 and the version we have in ClearCase is 9.1.20091.2050. I didn’t know how to upgrade properly so I just dragged and dropped the xxx.2050 files from our 3rdparty folder into GAC (c:\WINDOWS\assembly). After cleaning and rebuilding solution I was able to bring all designer views I tried so far – even those, which I thought were long lost.

Hope this helps – I know it bugged me for quite some time :-)

Also, we have discrepancies in various places in our projects – here’s UIP proj example. Please note 9.1.20091.1000 and 8.2.20082.2022 descriptors for the DLLs, which are actually 9.1.20091.2050. It does not seem that this affects the designer view though – but definitely something to keep an eye on.
